#4 of 7 in Things to do in Bamburgh
Trek across 4.8 km (3 mi) of unspoiled golden sand dunes and beach at Ross Back Sands Beach in England's far northeast. The nature-lover’s paradise features crystal clear water and no nearby facilities, leaving you completely at one with nature. Natural shade here is minimal, so bring plenty of sunscreen, protective clothing, or a beach umbrella. Remember to stock up on food at drink at the closest village 2 km (1.2 mi) away before heading to the beach.
